Do you have Celiac Disease, gluten allergy, wheat allergy, or other?

Yes. I had the blood test a few weeks ago and had "very positive anti-tissue transglutaminase antibodies and was negative for gliadins". I haven't had the endoscopy yet, and am not sure I'll bother since my symptoms have improved with a gluten-free diet. If anyone has strong feelings about whether it's important to get that kind of confirmation, I'd love to hear it.

When did you go gluten-free?

No answer yet

Do you live in NYC? If not, where do you live?

Yep, I live in Williamsburg.

What kind of events are you interested in?

Meetups, dinners, potlucks, drinks--whatever!

Are you interested in organizing events?

I'll be happy to help as needed.

Introduction

Hi all, I was recently diagnosed and am looking forward to meeting others in the same boat for tips and some fun, gluten-free socializing. -Kate
